Exploring the Bunchflower Plants

8 most common species:
Ypsilandra
Ypsilandra
Ypsilandra species are perennial plants that grow from thick rhizomes. Their leaves are generally long and thin, growing in a rosette from the base of the plant. The inflorescences consist of a cluster of nodding, radially-symmetrical tube-shaped flowers with six tepals. Ypsilandra is a genus of at least six herbaceous plant species. This genus is a member of the Melanthiaceae and is native to East Asia.
Paris
Paris
Paris is a genus of flowering plants. Paris contains species which have 4 to 11 merous flowers. It consists of less than two dozen herbaceous plants. It is widespread across Europe and Asia, with a center of diversity in China.
Anticlea
Death camas
Death camas is a genus of flowering plants in the family Melanthiaceae, tribe Melanthieae. Members of death camas may also be distinguished from other members of the former genus Zigadenus, the deathcamases, by the presence of narrow tepals with a single, conspicuous, bilobed gland. It also has a wider distribution, occurring in Asia and much of North and Central America.
Heloniopsis
Heloniopsis
Heloniopsis is native to east Asia.
Chionographis
Chionographis
Chionographis species are perennial flowering plants that grow from rhizomes. They produce a basal rosette of evergreen leaves, from the center of which emerges a flowering scape. The scape produces a spike of many small white flowers. The flowers are zygomorphic in shape, and when perfect have six tepals, one pistil, and six stamens. This genus is native to China, Japan, and Korea.
Toxicoscordion
Death camas
Death camas is a genus of flowering plants. Members of death camas may also be distinguished from other similar members of the deathcamas tribe by the presence of narrow, clawed tepals with a single, conspicuous, rounded gland. The genus is mainly distributed in the midwestern United States and western North America.
Trillium
Birthroots
Birthroots are flowering woodland herbs found in Asia and North America. These perennials flower during springtime. What looks like their leaves are actually enlarged, photosynthetic specialized leaflets (bracts); the plant has no true above ground leaves. Due to their decorative blooms and early blooming times, some species are cultivated in gardens.

Schoenocaulon
Schoenocaulon
Schoenocaulon
Schoenocaulon is a North American genus of perennial herbaceous flowering plants, ranging from the southern United States to Peru. Unlike other genera in the tribe, the flowers are arranged in a spike; depending on the species the flower stalks for each flower are either very short or completely absent. The petal and sepal color varies by species, with some shade of green being most common, but with maroon, cream, and bright red also represented.
Camas
Amianthium
Camas
Camas are a North American genus containing a single flowering perennial species. One of its common names is "fly poison" because every part of it contains extremely toxic alkaloids, and its bulbs were once mashed up and sugared by American colonists to attract and kill flies. It is largely pollinated by beetles, which are some of the few creatures that can tolerate its nectar.
Helonias

Featherbells
Stenanthium

Blazing-star
Chamaelirium
Blazing-star
Blazing-star are a genus with one sole member, Chamaelirium luteum. These perennial herbs are native to the United States and Canada. They are endangered due to over-harvesting of the wild plant in forests. The wand-like blooms attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The genus name Chamaelirium derives from the Greek words “chamai” and “lirion,” meaning "dwarf lily."
False hellebores
Veratrum
False hellebores
False hellebores are poisonous flowering herbs found on both sides of the Atlantic. The flower's clusters are unusual and attractive, with colors ranging from greenish-white to dull purple. Their appearance makes some species popular as ornamentals, despite their high toxicity. Their toxic compounds are extracted and used in the pesticide industry.

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
